The Effects of Factor Prices and Technological Change on the Occupational Demand for Labor: Evidence from Canadian Telecommunications.
Denny, Michael; Fuss, Melvyn
Journal of Human Resources, v18 n2 p161-76 Spr 1983
This paper investigates the effect of automation on the occupational demand for labor using modern econometric demand theory. The empirical results demonstrate the strong effects of innovative activity in the telecommunications industry. Technical change was capital-using and labor-saving, with the labor-saving impact being felt most severely by the least skilled occupations. (Author/SSH)
